Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor (Penguin Classics)

Price: 1.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the effort!, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definately worth the effort that working through the West of England dialect may be for many. The dialect passages are fairly brief and in total amoung to a small percentage of the whole. If you read these passages aloud they tend to make more sense, though this may give you strange looks on the train! A wonderful story and fascinating piece of social history. The sense of place is powerful and although I often find descriptive passages boring this was definately not the case with this book. The writing is simply gorgeous; all this supports a wonderful story which will not easily be forgotten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tractor and trailer, 17 Nov 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This tractor and trailer was an immediate and enduring success with our 2 year old grand-daughter. Despite having several other distractions in the way of presents, she kept returning to it over several days until we left. It is quite clear that it will still be an appropriate size for a number of years and although she cannot quite reach the pedals with enough purchase to pedal herself, with the seat adjusted (a very useful attribute) she will quite soon. Although in this weather, she has not yet been outside with it, it seems clear that it is sufficiently durable to play around the garden and "help" her parents when they are gardening. The lifting bonnet cover is of extra interest and, of course, the trailer can be filled with anything that amuses the owner, for now that means dolls!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy piano pieces for Peter and the Wolf, 25 May 2011
I am delighted with this book. My young grandson loves watching the Sting DVD of Peter and the Wolf and I thought when he comes to stay with us he might enjoy experiencing the story in a different way. He already sings most of the themes. I used to play the piano many years ago, but find this book well within my ability range, albeit with a little practice! The illustrations are fun but not particularly inspiring, but then this doesn't set out to be a picture book. The introduction is something I particularly like with the first line of the theme tune for each character set against a picture of them. All in all a good buy.
